Entertainment Weekly swears (after a confirmation from an ABC rep) that UGLY BETTY’S Becki Newton played a dual role in Thursday’s episode. Not only was she her usual fabulous self as Betty’s nemesis Amanda, but also played the nerdy (glasses wearing!) braceface Ruthie on last week’s episode. Talk about a transformation! This TV addict had no idea. More importantly it got me thinking. If Amanda is this good at disguises, how do we know she doesn’t really work for SD-6 and her work at Mode Magazine is simply a cover? I haven’t seen such good acting since the early days of Sydney Bristow.
